Great Graduates 2020: Eduardo Ramos

Valedictorian of Fox Tech High School is headed to UT-Austin to study neuroscience

SAN ANTONIO – Eduardo Ramos is graduating at the top of his class. He’s the valedictorian at Fox Tech High School, but he said he is already excited about his next chapter — medical school.

In the meantime, he's heading to the University of Texas at Austin to study neuroscience.

Ramos said he has been passionate about robotics and the medical field, but when he took biology at Fox Tech, he said that's when he decided he wanted to be a neurosurgeon.

“I took the class and I loved it,” said Ramos. “And, one of the parts I loved the most was the nervous system. They taught us how it worked, and it was honestly pretty cool.”

Ramos had a busy senior year. He was in the academic decathlon, NHS, HOSA, a mariachi class, and he’s been busy with sports.

“I’ve been in cross country, I’ve been in track, I’ve been in archery, I’ve been in soccer,” said Ramos. “Just doing all these activities really made my high school experience fun.”
